Colorado Mountain Elopement

Fort Collins Colorado Mountaintop Wedding

This Colorado mountain elopement the most special day to be a part of! I’ve known Molly for sometime, and when she called to tell me about her wedding plans to have a small, intimate ceremony in one of their favorite places in Fort Collins, I was ready to jump right in! They chose one of their favorite locations, Gateway Natural Area, to say their vows in front of a few close friends and family members before heading back into town to for an elegant reception at Ace Gillett’s, the coolest lounge inside the Armstrong Hotel.

I love that they chose Gateway Natural Area for the ceremony as it offers a gorgeous mix of green space and mountains- a perfect combination of their past and present! As Molly and David’s loved ones awaited their arrival on the mountain, the skies opened up and gave way to a rain shower. We took cover for a few minutes, and the clouds cleared, giving these two a beautiful overcast sky and cooler temps to walk down the aisle. Molly and David shared a few moments together as the rain moved out, and then hand-in-hand walked to the ceremony site together.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this wedding day was yet another reminder of what an honor it is to get to be asked to be a part of someone’s wedding day. Being right there in a front row seat to witness and capture the quietest little moments is really something special.
